    Default Is a high DPS needed for comms?

    I've been wondering about it for a while and cant exactly tell if a high dps is needed for comms. Please tell me so I dont have to worry about it if I dont need to, thanks.

    It's good to have, but try not to sacrifice dodge and armour to gain extra

    You also fail at using the edit function...and the erase post function!

    And no, it's not really needed. in PvE a commando relies a lot on skills to crowd control, and skill damage is based off of your weapon damage base stat.

    Dps is in no way needed for a com.Your main goal as a COM is to take agro off your team mates . To do this ,skills which include taunts and a pistol/shield or Cannon is recommended. Take a look around forums , there are some really nice builds which will help a lot.

    side note : The reason why people stress OP to focus on DPS for PVE is because of their de buff which pairs nicely with a lot of damage very quickly.

    What everyone else said.

    It's better to have a high hit% like me.

    Not really... But non-class-specific guns don't have much of a dps difference anyway. Often I go back to dps one-handed guns over tanking guns because it's difficult to tank in Voleria when there are so many engis who never heal.

    The only dps comms can have is extra dps

    do not TRY to get dps for comms

    No, a high dps is not required for a commando...you need high damage range, but not too unstable, proving why nova blaster is the optimal weapon for a commando, as opposed to electrorazer, which has the highest dps in the game. i hoped this helped you

    i agree, its extreemely annoying when those engis dont do their job.

    and dps is not needed but it does help, commandos more focus on crowd control and aoe damage than single target.

    Commandos are classic tanks. Their aim is not to kill, but to maintain the aggro so that the others - the ops and engis - are able to kill off enemies without having to take laserbeams to their face (unlike you, the tank). So no, comms don't need high dps. Just some crowd control and a good cannon/rifle.

    Good luck.

    BTW Cannons have great dps and aoe. My favorite is the Primed Flux Cannon.
